Still no brake lights would indicate a bad wire. Check for power at the brake switch, repair the wire, they usually break close to the plug. This will get back the lights and shifter. The no start would be the neutral safety switch on the transmission. Usually the switch is under the shifter cable. Some have a separate switch.

SOURCE: No Brake Lights, unable to switch from park to drive

It is not the multifunction switch. The power feed goes thru the brake switch before the multi function. You have no power the the brake switch because your shift interlock is not allowing you to shift it. I'll look up the wiring diagram and repost with a solution.

Lok in the trunk on the left side, behind the carpet for a small plastic box with a bunch of wires going to it. Look to see if there is brake light powe coming in with the pedal depressed. If so, and no power is coming out, you need to order and replace the "taillamp failure sensor".

SOURCE: My car is stuck in park, the brake lights do not

The neutral safety switch on the tranny is going out. Replace this switch and you should not have any more problems. This switch registers that your foot is on the brake before it will allow it to come out of park to keep kids from accidently engaging the shifter.

One of your power wires is grounding to something, whether through a switch or relay.

I had wires fuse together that had the same effect in a vehicle years ago. Constantly blew fuses and happened to find the 2 wires fused under the dash in the steering console.

This is probably not your problem but there are very few things that cause those fuses to blow that rapidly.

Electrical is difficult to troubleshoot over the net though. Find out what the fuse goes to and try to follow the wires from point A to B as much as you can. May be as simple as a wire that the insulation is rubbed off or cut at a point and touching the body.

Do your brake lights work? Your brake pedal switch supplies power to the shift solenoid to alow you to shift. When you push the pedal do you here a clicking in the Shifter? The fuse might have blown, it is in the interior fuse panel possibly listed as shift interlock.

Where is the interlock switch to get my 2005 ford freestyle out of park it's stuck


hey! Jasmine first check that the fuse for the brake lights is not blown there's a safety thing that will not let you shift out of park if the fuse is blown /// next if O.K. you must check the brake light switch on the frame where the pedal is under the dash if lights are working then the interlock switch is on the steering column here's the connector that you'll look for

Stuck in park


A thought since I didnt see your original problem or any of the solutions supplied to you .I would check the electrical contact with a test light to see if you have 12 volts going to your brake light switch or see if you have brake lights if you have brake lights the brake light switch is fine. I would than check your neutral start switch .Check the connector first for 12 volts if you have no power in connector it will not come out of gear .if power is present switch needs to be tested. If this is at all helpful please leave me good feedback

Car won't go in gear brake lights not working. replaced one switch on brake pedal already


If the brake light switch doesn't work then the solenoid that allows you to move the gear selector out of park is locked out, it is a safety feature required by law, jump the brake light switch with a paper clip ( verify the brake lights are on) and see if you can get it out of park, I am sure it will now come out, then either replace the brake light switch or the wiring to it, many times the wires to the connector of the brake light switch brake inside the plastic insulation, so the outside looks good but the connection is not there or comes and goes, I suspect this is the problem with your car. The solenoid I mentioned is on top of the steering column.
